After receiving lots of criticism over the remark, the singer has now issued a statement clarifying exactly what she meant, explaining she was talking in metaphor.
"I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context. My speech began with " I want to start a revolution of love." ♥️ I then go on to take this opportunity to encourage women and all marginalized people to not fall into despair but rather to come together and use it as a starting point for unity and to create positive change in the world. I spoke in metaphor and I shared two ways of looking at things — one was to be hopeful, and one was to feel anger and outrage, which I have personally felt. However, I know that acting out of anger doesn't solve anything."
Listening to her speech, we didn't actually take that part seriously, and we doubt any sane person did either.

At the end of the day, this is our new reality and we need to get our shit together (Madonna was right!) if we're going to prosper as a nation.
Most celebs — like George Lopez, Chrissy Teigen, and Chris Rock — understandably refuse to accept Trump and everything he stands for while acknowledging the "dark" times we're in:
What are you looking at?!
Madonna has been in vogue for literally four decades now, but our favorite era of hers may just be 1990's Blond Ambition World Tour.
